Covers Project Vol. XII

You know the drill. Great versions of great songs... or great versions of rotten songs, I'll take it either way. What I avoid are the rotten versions of great songs. There's no room on these mixes for yet another whispy-voiced indie chanteuse with a dolphin tatt turning some mouldy buttrock nugget into a fragile statement of yearning. Insincere apologies to any Pomplamoose fans who've found this blog by accident. For pretty much everyone else, you'll probably find something to rock yer world.

"...yet another whispy-voiced indie chanteuse with a dolphin tatt turning some mouldy buttrock nugget into a fragile statement of yearning" - oh man, that says it all! Though not entirely sure what a buttrock nugget sounds like. Doesn't sound pleasant anyway. Thanks for the great covers!

Thank you for these! I just went and downloaded all 12!

I'll never tire of a well-rocked cover song. When I was younger, cover songs helped turn me on to older musicians. When I got older, cover songs showed me which youngsters knew their shit! Plus, it's always neat to hear great songs re-interpreted, or even mediocre songs turned great!

I find these to be nice companions to the Tribute or Not Tribute series at PowerPopCriminals.

Your work on these compilations is much appreciated!
